The Biblical Borders of the Land of Israel
From the story of Bnei Gad and Reuven in Parshat Matot, it seems as though the borders of Israel are rather 'expandable,' while in Parshat Masei, they appear to be quite fixed. So what are the borders of the Land of Israel? This week's shiur examines the biblical roots of this complicated topic. Online:

The Laws of Parshat Matot
Why are the laws of "nedarim" [vows] directed specifically to the "rashei ha'matot" [tribal leaders]? This question is only one of many questions that arise from the opening pasuk of Parshat Matot. This week, we take a break from our thematic study of Sefer Bamdibar and dedicate a shiur to "parshanut" [Biblical commentary] on the first pasuk of the Parsha. Offline/Download:
